Why Travelers Choose This Tour

See three of Kent’s most popular attractions in one day (and leave all the logistics to someone else).
Hop aboard your air-conditioned coach in central London, and leave the city’s crowds behind as you journey into the English countryside on your day trip. On route, put on your state-your-art Vox headphones to clearly hear your guide’s commentary, and gain fascinating insight into the passing sights.

Travel through historical, maritime Greenwich, and glimpse its famous National Maritime Museum, Royal Naval College and 18th-century Royal Observatory, the home of the Prime Meridian, where the world’s time is set.

Then, head into the picturesque county of Kent, and arrive at Leeds Castle: a picture book, 12th-century castle encircled by a moat and parklands. Head inside and take a private tour before the doors open to the public. Admire the opulent rooms filled with rich furniture, tapestries, and artworks, and learn how the castle was once a residence of medieval monarchs. 
Stroll through the gardens, and perhaps navigate your way through the maze, a puzzle of geometric yew hedges.

Next, drive to the ancient city of Canterbury, home to UNESCO-listed Canterbury Cathedral: a center of Christian worship for nearly 1,000 years. Founded in 597 and rebuilt in the 11th and 12th centuries, this majestic church is one of England’s oldest. 

Head into this serene cathedral, and enjoy the special privilege of a guided tour in your large group, as you listen to your guide’s commentary via your headphones. As you explore, learn about the church’s bloodiest hour—the day in 1170 when four knights of Henry II stormed inside and murdered Archbishop Thomas Becket.

Back on your coach, continue through pretty villages toward Dover on Kent’s south coast. Here, snap photos of the famous White Cliffs of Dover. Learn why this site is important to the English, and see England's largest castle, Dover Castle, rising from a hilltop.
Your tour finishes with a drop-off in central London.

We had an amazing trip, with an amazing guide: Rowen. Thank you! We want you on each of our tour! Leeds castle is beautiful! Canterbury is worth a visit. After Dover Cliffs, we had a short detour to the Battle of Britain Memorial, which was an exquisite surprise. Highly appreciated

Leeds Castle was the highlight of this excursion. The remaining sites were ok. Good value just for Leeds Castle. The Tour guide had a great sense of humour which made the day trip by bus very enjoyable.

Excellent Tour of the above mentioned places. Phil who was our tour guide & had a wealth of knowledge & kept the group very well informed. He was very pleasant, immaculately dressed & very professional. I have travelled widely & joined many tours but never met a tour guide as Phil who has in depth information. Our driver Tom was a careful driver and very pleasant. Happy to recommend the tour, Phil and Tom as well.
Interesting and enjoyable

Loved this tour. Pick up was easy, guide fun and informative as well. Plenty of time at each stop without feeling rushed. Definitely recommend.
What a disappointment

The tour guide, Sheila seemed to spend more time taking care of personal issues via phone than she did providing the types of information that tour guides typically do. At the beginning of the trip she shared information about how wonderful the Cliffs of Dover would be. When it was time to go to Dover she said she’d “made an executive decision not to go to Dover due to traffic being backed up for 1 hour and 45 minutes”. We were taken to a war memorial and when we left the memorial the coach driver showed us the road. It was true that the lane with 18 wheel trucks was stopped. However, the lane that cars and coaches were using was fine with no slow down. The remainder of the trip back to London was spent with Sheila making more personal phone calls. Several of us specifically selected this tour to visit the Cliffs of Dover. I wouldn’t recommend this company/tour/tour guide to anyone.
Excellent tour
